This powerful 19th century Japanese netsuke was carved from an ancient mammoth tusk. Traditional Japanese clothing didn’t have pockets, so men and women carried fans, eyeglasses, money, tobacco, and incense in pouches attached to their belts. At the time, wealthy people gave beautiful pouches like this to one another as gifts. This fine example with such a striking bead would have been highly desirable and considered a status symbol. It is mounted on a custom iron stand.

This item cannot be shipped outside of Illinois.

“PAGODA RED was extremely supportive in helping to pull accessory options together for the Lake Forest Showhouse. After providing them with details and our vision on how we were looking to finish our space, Laurene helped curate options that made it easy for us to edit and finalize. It's also no surprise that the unique pieces we used in our showhouse space were some of the first to sell.”
